2008 MHOAA National Convention Scholarship

Attention: The scholarship deadline has been extended to FRIDAY, AUGUST 1st!

Please read these instructions and complete ALL forms prior to AUGUST 1, 2008. Failure to do so may result in loss of scholarship.

Board Approval

The scholarship will be awarded to the state homeowners’ association (HOA); rather than on an individual basis. Each state HOA may qualify for up to two scholarships. The board of said state HOA must demonstrate organizational support of the individuals homeowners attending from their group or state. As such, the board must fill out the form below in order for the scholarship to be approved.

When considering who to send from your organization, we recommend that individual(s) are interested in and able to:
- share information from their own state;
- listen to and retain information gained at the convention; and
- commit to reporting back any information or contacts gathered at the convention for the benefit of those who could not attend.

Types of Scholarships

There is a limited pool of money potentially available to cover the following costs: travel expenses (airfare or gas), lodging fees (hotel costs), and the conference registration fee. To reduce costs, all scholarship recipients should expect to share a room. S/he may choose her/his own roommate, or, if there is no preference, we will pick someone of the same gender. If the recipient has concerns about this, please contact the APAC office to discuss.

Please note that any portion of these expenses that you are able to pay for yourself will result in monies available for those that cannot cover any of their costs. The less you are able to accept, the more homeowners we can bring to the convention.

MHOAA Membership

It is required that all recipients apply for MHOAA membership. To receive a scholarship, your organization must have filled out a MHOAA membership form and paid their first year’s dues. The MHOAA membership application can be found on the MHOAA website at: MHOAA Application for Membership

MHOAA membership is $75 for the first year, and $150 each year thereafter. A copy of the filled out application and the check to MHOAA will be required as evidence of having applied.
